The University of St. Francis (USF) is proud to become the new host of the National Hispanic Institute’s National Lorenzo de Zavala Youth Legislative Session. The inaugural program was hosted at the university June 24, 2018 to July 1, 2018, through a partnership allowing NHI to keep one of its flagship LDZ programs in the Chicago metro area. Eric Wignall, vice president of Admissions, Enrollment, and Marketing for the University of St. Francis, expressed excitement to be working with NHI. “We welcome the chance to have a group of highly motivated students come onto our campus,” says Wignall. Regarding the LDZ program in particular, Wignall also noted, “There’s never been a better time to learn about the legislative process, to be involved, to figure out how to be a leader in the community.” Founded in 1920, the University of St. Francis, in Joliet, Ill, is a Catholic, Franciscan university that serves 4,100 students nationwide; offering bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs in the arts and sciences, business, education, nursing and social work.
